Vacation Idea #2: Chicago Field Museums

The Field Museum fuels a journey of discovery across time to enable solutions for a brighter future rich in nature and culture. Come face to face with the largest T. Rex ever found, descend into an ancient Egyptian tomb, or shrink to the size of a bug. It’s all in a day at The Field Museum.

Vacation Idea #3: Peoria RiverFront

From the serenity of the flowing waters to the festive atmosphere of our events, there’s something for everyone at Peoria’s RiverFront. Visit an ethnic festival, browse through a fine art fair, stroll the sculpture walk or be entertained by a strolling performer. From jazz to rock to the blues, Festival Park comes alive with music throughout the season.
